Yay! Long weekend kickoff to OUR season. And yes, traditionally this is a work weekend getting the cottage and outdoors into shape. But we all need to take some break so whether you’re in the mood for a documentary, a craft beerfest or a great yoga class, here are some of the events going on this Victoria Day Weekend in Muskoka.
Traversing the Wild
Traversing Wild is about passing through the unknown to reach a greater understanding. It is a documentary about seemingly normal people that, for 24 hours, succumb to the unknown and let themselves be swallowed up by the wilderness as they desperately try to make it through, in a race against time, and their own limitations. Set in Parry Sound, Ontario, just outside of the rugged and rocky shores of Georgian Bay, a select number of teams have prepared to navigate through 120 kilometres of backcountry; biking, running and paddling, in a true expedition-style, point to point race, with nothing but a few weary souls and a wooden carving of a beaver waiting for them at the finish.
Fitness classes at Tri-Lake Fitness:
Tri-Lake Fitness will hold a class Saturday May 20th: Cardio Joe 10:30-11:30 am, then following that class they have a By Donation Yoga class being held at the gym from 11:45-12:45 with drinks and healthy snacks to follow. The By Donation Yoga class is raising funds for Ashley’s Ironman Cancer Fundraiser. She is doing an Ironman this summer in Lake Placid with a goal of raising $5000 for Multiple Myeloma Cancer.
Muskoka 2/4 Craft Beer Festival in Huntsville

The Kee to Bala
Our favourite kick hole in the wall spot on the water to hear music in Muskoka is kicking off its concert season with The Trews.
Judging by the boldness of their choices, you’d never guess The Trews are 10 years, five studio albums and thousands of gigs into their highly celebrated career. 2014 saw the release of their electrifying new disc, album The Trews. It tallies so many firsts that even the band cop to being a smidge flabbergasted by their own achievements, 15 top 10 Canadian radio singles (including two #1’s) notwithstanding.

The Kee will also host Sunday/Funday activities.
